Stage 1: We work together to determine an MVP (minimum viable product) for getting you launched on the app stores. You choose what features to include (based on our pricing guide) and we build the app on your behalf.
Stage 2: We provide demo builds to let you test the progress as we develop. We gather feedback and continue on the final build. We submit the builds to the respective app stores on your behalf.
Stage 3: You are trained on the backend CMS. After the training you’ll be able to add new content, edit, and manage the app by yourself.
